Church Lane now has a sign secured to a stone wall at its entrance, asking people not to park on that corner (because it causes obstructions to residents, bin collection and works’ vehicles) and because there is a grate which needs to be kept clear in case of flash flooding. In spite of this, some cars are continuing to park there. I have taken a photo of a car today, reg WF62 OCG, which has all but squashed the red cone placed on top of the grate to keep it clear. If anyone knows whose car this is, would you please have a word with them and explain why they should not park there? Thank you.
Would you like to decorate one window at home to the theme of a Christmas Carol or song of your choice? Each window would ‘open’ on a specified date and remain open throughout Advent or until 12th night.
We would make a map showing where the windows are for people to view them.
Please contact Gill Drake on 01626 873 614 if you are interested.

Please rate our website – Excellent How could we improve? Difficult to know how you could improve it. Packed full of very essential and useful information, all set out in a very easy to navigate format and something of interest for everyone. The’ local tradespeople’ section is a godsend for anyone needing help, and the Parish Council, Village Hall and shop webpages are an excellent link to what’s going on in the village. We also particularly appreciated the ‘Village Gallery’ with views that perhaps the less mobile of us would never have known to exist. A credit to the village, and well done to the compiler/s. Thank you.

Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for North Devon MP Selaine Saxby to resign over her comments on free school meals – as the council she still sits on have announced they will use a Local Hardship Fund to help.
The Conservative MP, in a post on North Devon News Facebook group on Friday night under her personal account, stated that she hoped that if eateries in the area were able to offer free food, that they would not require further government assistance.
In the message that was later deleted, the MP for North Devon said: “I am delighted our local businesses have bounced back so much after lockdown that they are able to give food away for free, and very much hope they will not be seeking any further government support.”
Calls have since been made by the Liberal Democrats in North Devon for her to resign, saying her apology isn’t good enough, while North Devon Council, where she remains a councillor for the Instow ward, have said they will be using their Local Hardship Fund to provide financial assistance to schools in the area who then identified and provided direct help to families and pupils most at need.
